Working all day on Saturdays has caused Aunt Flo to arrive. The separation gave my body the hormone boost to bring her around. I was hoping I'd at least make it to Penny's second birthday. I had the longest stretch with Abby- two years exactly. Vera was somewhere between 18 and 20 months. 16 months is too short. So anyways, she gave me an excuse to crave ice cream and chocolate and wallow in self pity.
